One day in early June, Therese Do Thi Tuyet Lan decided to replace her old phone case with a new pink one she had carefully selected from colorful models on a shelf at the Jesuit-run Dac Lo Center.

Lan, who attends a course in education held by local Jesuits, took a photo of the new case and posted the image on Facebook before putting it on her phone.
